NJ resident loses job over Walmart drug testing
Erick Zanetich, 31, of Monroeville, was offered a job as an asset protection association at the Sam’s Club eCommerce Fulfillment Center in Swedesboro in January, with a start date of Feb. 7.
The job was subject to passing a drug test. He tested positive for marijuana, and the job offer was rescinded as a result.
NJ law on marijuana in workplace
Zanetich’s lawsuit seeks to be a class action covering everyone denied a job at Walmart for testing positive for marijuana in the pre-employment drug screening since Feb. 22, 2021, when the New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory, Enforcement Assistance and Marketplace Modernization Act took effect.
